The Lowlands is a region of more gentle, floral whiskies. Their single malt distilleries have earned the nickname "The Lowland Ladies". In this region, triple distillation is preferred, which makes the whisky more delicate. Auchentoshan is perhaps the most famed Lowland distillery, though there are other great distilleries, including Glenkinchieand the recently restarted Bladnoch. Rosebank and Ladyburn, meanwhile, are sadly defunct distilleries that earned great reputations for their superb whiskies.
